With two new exhibits opening, and programs for all ages, it’s a great time to explore! The BCM&CC is a place that provides an abundance of interactive stories told through exhibits and programs, a place for social gatherings, and a community and cultural hub.

The galleries are filled with interactive and engaging exhibits that tell the story of Bruce County, along with temporary exhibitions and art shows. “Open Doorways” is an art installation that explores mental health through the art of storytelling and visual imagery. Opening on May 6, this exhibit was created by Melissa Comyn, Mother, Registered Nurse and Artist, and her husband John, who has a passion for photography. Throughout the exhibition, individuals share their mental health journeys through the photography lens and written word. Visitors may gain a better perspective of how someone may feel and learn more about the mental health system and the resources available to help individuals along their journey. “Open Doorways” is proudly presented by Community Foundation Grey Bruce and Saugeen Shores Community fun, this exhibition will be open from May 6 until June month2

Springtime is about getting outside and what better way with our “Eco Explorers” program, which engages children aged 7 to 12 in learning about the environment through activities about a variety of environment topics ranging from animals to recycling, waterways to soil, and everything in between. This year MacGregor Point Provincial Park staff are joining the program on May 4 to explore the first signs of spring outdoors. Then on May 31, which is also a PA Day, there is a full-day bus trip to Clinton Conversation Area where participants will get up close with the wildlife and ecosystems of this area with the help of Ausauble Bayfield Conservation staff. The “Eco Explorers” program is proudly presented by Ontario Power Generation.
